of the house and a grand lady from louisiana, ms. lindy boggs. they was a pioneer and trail blazer for the state of louisiana. she served louisiana's second congressional district following the death of her husband, h lambings e boggs. she was the first woman to represent the state of louisiana in congress and founder of the congresswoman's caucus. mr. scalise: in tribute to her service as a pioneer for women, the congressional women's reading room is rightfully named in her honor down the hall. she was the first woman and only louisiana ambassador to the holy see in the tenure of pope john paul ii. lindy effortlessly balanced her role as a respected leader and loving mother. she loved her city of new orleans, in fact, lived on bourbon street for many of her later years in new orleans. she loved her beloved tulane university and in fact, just recently, she and her daughter cokie participated in a benefit for tulane university in new orleans. she's somebody who will be dearly missed and somebody who we are honored to have, to be able to call a former colleague of ours here in the ho
but nothing like this. tonight a remarkable scene in louisiana caught on camera, everything vanishing in 30 seconds but what caused it and could it happen near you. here's abc's matt gutman tonight. >> reporter: this is not an optical illusion. a stand of trees seemly melting into this swamp in louisiana is being swallowed into a massive sink hole, sucking everything down with it. watch those trees again dipping slowly at first and then quickly vanishing into the hole. it's more than a football field deep. it's near an old salt mine. workers were using water to dissolve and pump out the salt deep underground and eventually pumped out enough to make the ground give way. now the earth slowly moves into the cavern causing growing sink holes above. >> it's going to continue to grow until it finds a point where it can support itself. >> reporter: the sink hole appeared a year ago. 150 house holds were evacuated and the state is suing the company that mined the salt. sink holes are system and often occur naturally. this one in downtown gal mall la city was big enough to swallow the statue of libe
though. first, exactly 8 years ago today, hurricane katrina made landfall over louisiana. the start of that deadly disaster that forever changed the gulf coast. >> rolling? >> yeah. leave.emely hard to your whole life is here and your whole world. it's hard to decide what's important or value. >> harris: it hit that day but took days before we learned the truex tent. the storm killed 1800 people. damaged or destroyed more than a quarter million homes. thousands of americans took refuge at the superdome in new orleans. remember these pictures? punishing heat. 8 years later the rebuilding is far from over. but today people in new orleans hard-hit lower ninth ward got together to remember the life-changing storm and to say a prayer for their community. in a statement the governor of louisiana bobby jindal said hurricane katrina was a terrible and devastating storm that wrought us to our knees but it didn't shake our resolve. we are with you, louisiana. we'll be right back. i'd be sitting there with my friends who had their verizon phones and i'd be sitting there like "mine's still load
across many of the areas and across parts of texas and louisiana we are talking extreme heat. a number of heat advisories in effect out here. we are talking actual temperatures making it into the triple digits you factor in the humidity it will feel like 105 to 110 degrees. southwestern parts of arkansas northwestern louisiana and eastern sections of texas. take a look at the forecast the extended forecast for the city of dallas. it will remain in triple digits. other areas of the country warming up as well new york city back in the middle 80s. yesterday only in the 70s. back to summer. >> 80 is not too bad. >> check out the viral video. this hungry bear starts out dumpster diving. then he decides he would like his meal on the go. easily dragging the 500 pound dumpster. it's the second time in the past week he has taken the dumpster from the back of the restaurant. >> he is just dragging it away. that brings us to our brew on this on the day. favorite viral videos of the week. here is a recap. >> he hit 5 home runs in a row. sign him up. >> exactly. sign that kid up. >> finally this wo

that you have been covering, led a strike in june. we spoke with a walmart worker from louisiana who participated. worked in the store 1102. we went on an unfair labor strike in early june. and we came back from our strike, we were both fired for going on strike. they told us, we missed a certain amount of days -- which were the days we went on strike. that was the reason for them firing us. actually against the law for them to fire us ribbeck we told them about it. at the time they said, they don't recognize our strike and that is why they were terminating -- terminating us. >> it is a union backed nonunion group for walmart. what he is describing is the greatest wave of retaliation against workers by walmart who are organizing that we have seen at least since 2005. there are 60 workers who went on strike last month who have been .isciplined in some way it represents a major threat. we have seen is workers attempted to defend workers who allegedly retaliated with more collective action. on friday night for the big strike wave starting this week, we saw workers at ominous walk worker
great people like bobby jindal in louisiana. we he have kasich in ohio. we have got a whole sear regions of top notch governors and then you have got jeb bush who was a great governor in florida two terms. my sense which one of those governors evolved. chris christie a frontrunner and raise money an viable candidate. whoever wins that against the washington establishment i think comes out basically a much better candidate. >> chris plant, i think he is saying rand paul is a washington establishment. >> came in as revolutionary. he is being framed that way. and he really is at this point versus the establishment republican party. a very revolutionary voice right now in washington, d.c. which is rather absurd on some level. but as a libertarian voice, i think that if you are looking at going up against hillary clinton, i think rand paul is the stark contrast. he is the bright colors. he is not the pale pastels. i think christie is a nice guy. i'm not a chris christie basher. he is the run of the mill establishment, you know, big government. >> laura: i remember when he ran in 2010. he ran

: on the coasts of louisiana, contraflow goes in to effect. what that means is that major roads that normally go this to the city, are then forced out. so people can evacuate. >> a kim of roads open for emergency vehicles, the major systems, interstate systems are all the going away from new orleans. >> reporter: in 2008. contraflow sending vehicles way from the city. >> we are only major city that ever did a full scale evacuation and it works. >> reporter: because the he whack vague location signs were so simple then, people were confuse about where to go. the city hopes that the sculptures around town will help. >> i think it's an excellent idea. eespecially because people are aware of those places. >> reporter: her home in the lower ninth ward was under 10 feet of water during hurricane katrina, the sculptures of safety are i a welcome sign. >> if they say it's time to go i was time to go. we surrounded by water all over. >> reporter: a city with creativity and a mission to never leave their citizens trapped again. robert ray, al gentleman sear, a new orleans. >> michael is here with a look a
criminals. louisiana is the latest fed target. consider rick perry, now defending the state's voter i.d. law after texas was sued. or jan brewer fighting the feds after her crackdown on illegals. tim, in each and every case and in other cases just like them, states defy, and then the government pounces. >> so, president obama does not seem to like federalism very much. federalism is the idea that many issues are best handled by states and the federal government should not tell states how to run their business, and you see very good reason in last the voucher program is mostly used by poor black children in failing schools. it helps them get out of the schools and into better schools, and yet the doj comes in and decides, well, this is somehow resegregating the schools because some people are moving out of some school districts into others. they don't have the firsthand knowledge, the knowledge on the ground and it's absurd to say a program helping poor black kid get into better schools in new orleans is discriminatory, but from washington, lawyers, it looks that way. >> neil: the same for ar
accountable. if you are up for elections in arkansas and louisiana and you start getting calls from 5,000 or 10,000 or 50,000, this looks very, very different. i agree with you. we are running out of time. i want to get this in. i know a lot has been made of the fact that your birth certificate and you have renounwned your canadian citizenship. but it is interesting how many democrats do not want you to get into the race for the presidency. let me play for you the comments of howard dean and get your response. >> these are crazy ideas that are from the far right. he's a slick spokesman. >> god help us if he everyone. i want you to respond. what is your alternative that you are offering? >> look, there are democrats that can choose to throw whatever rocks they want. unfortunately governor dean's approach is he likes a won size fits all approach. what he was responding to was i said americans should be able to buy insurance across state lines and americans should have the ability to get low cost patient care. and sadly that has been the approach of president obama and governor dean and
guest has a lot of questions too. republican senator david vitter out of louisiana. >> good morning, good to be with you. bill: and you as well. we've been on the story for two weeks. what is your take on it? >> sadly this is what america hates most about washington. washington passes law and exempts itself. this is the same thing all over again. you know obamacare is broken. it's a big problem. great, washington fixes it for washington. wait a minute, what about fixing it for america and in meantime, treating washington, every member of congress all staff, president, vice president, all of their appointees exactly as same as middle america? bill: that is a great question. you written letters to the president and pelosi and reid and boehner and mcconnell. >> right. bill: part of your letter says this on screen for the viewers this is just one sentence. >> sure. bill: this bailout was pulled out of thin air under intense and sadly bipartisan political pressure. you're a republican. are you saying democrats and republicans were on board with the subsidy cut? >> some of them, absolutel
-old in louisiana shot and killed his 90-year-old caregiver as she watched television. police report the boy had just finished playing the video game grand theft auto. are violent media affecting kids and making them violent. joining us, the doctor from our fine medical aid team. thanks for joining us this morning. that is the question, the piece in the "new york times" this week that said most researchers agree violent media do have an effect on media, do increase the predilection to violence. >> i think focusing on violent media misses the greater problem, which is media. we are deploying, whether through facebook or reality tv lots of ways for people to not be in reality, to not feel their feelings. yes, violent video games are part of that problem, because you can't maintain the connection and have a real reality while being wrenched into virtual reality. it does not work. human beings do not have that capacity, at least some of the outliers among us do not. >> so you're saying that as we're basically anesthetizing our kids with television or video games that aren't able to process how they
with a front in the southeast. that means heavy rain stretching from louisiana all the way into the carolinas. couple scattered showers are possible in the northeast but generally speaking gorgeous. we're talking about 70s and 80s. temperatures below normal and i always want to end on a good note especially in the rock block. >> rocking into a beautiful weekend. thanks so much, indra. >>> we're close to the top of the hour, time for the top news. >>> right now we're just looking for her future and getting her settled. >> moving forward. hannah anderson stepping out in public for the first type since being rescued. new details on her captor as we hear from her father on how she is doing. >>> too far, a blistering, new report says the nsa broke privacy rules of its surveillance program thousands of times each year, spying on americans it shouldn't be. >>> new discovery and it's a cute one, meet the mammal who has been hidden for centuries just being found by mankind now. where has he been all this time? >> your "new day" starts right now. >> announcer: what you need to know. >> our traditional
. beginning with video that is awesome in the sense that it is just absolutely crazy. bayou corn, louisiana, is the site of what "mother jones" calls the biggest ongoing industrial disasters in the united states you haven't heard of. state is suing a mining company called texas brine for allegedly causing a massive underground sinkhole surely, slowly swallowing the town. it is growing. the entire town of 340 people have been forced to evacuate. unfortunately, the trees surrounding the sinkhole don't have that option. check that out. the assumption parish emergency response team released this video wednesday. an entire grove of trees getting sucked down, 750 feet deep. notice they don't fall over. they get sucked down into the massive hole below. amazing and terrifying. the second awesomest thing on the internet today, speaking of underground calf vernes, i add happen opportunity last week to take a field trip 180 feet below the streets of new york city to tour the construction project to build a new subway line up 2nd avenue in manhattan. this is what it looked like down there. incredible f
accelerated to an achievement are smaller. maryland, delaware, massachusetts, louisiana, which is unique in some ways. we could have a debate about whether it is good or bad what is happening in the louisiana. the small school thing is in that mix, nested in that mix. what does a school and do well, what would be better to farm out to a larger entity? you do not have a lot of that farming out in a lot of states. not so much in california, new jersey. this superintendent sharing program is interesting and hopefully somebody will study that. how large do the other entities have to get to take on certain tasks in order to be affected? >> i think your paper and the position that one size does not fit all is the right position to take. inter-district choice may help in some cases, but there needs to be real choice, if that is the case. it has to be about quality and kids, as opposed to the politics that we see around choice right now. in the places that we were, in most of the rural communities, high poverty, already consolidated, inter-district choice is often not an option. there are transp

in louisiana. >> it's gone from bourgeois critique of african-american men's behavior to legislators saying there's some correlation between the way one dresses and the way in which crimes occur. i come from a background around sexual violence and we know women are policed around dressing. it's really problematic or sexist correlation between a woman wearing a mini skirt and she gets raped. >> if you're wearing a mini skirt you deserve to get raped, wearing a hoodie, deserve to get shot. at the table here, it's easy this comes from the outside, rush limbaugh or fox news saying this. but we were together at the essence festival, vastly african-american room, you said some things about how you should dress when you go meet the principal of the school of your kid, the applause, ovation, people were like, that's right, you've got to do right when you go see the principal. this resonates in african-american communities. >> we try to intellectualize to get back to the issues. we have to acknowledge racism is bigger than the way you dress. however, if you come to see me as the principal in spongeb

also appeared to go after two potential republican rivals for the white house, louisiana governor bobby jindal and kentucky senator rand paul. in an apparent reference to paul, he criticized republicans who put conservative purity above pragmatism. >> i think we have some folks who believe that our job is to be college professors. for our ideas to matter, we have to win. because if we don't win, we don't govern. and if we don't govern, all we do is shout into the wind. >> reporter: that comes after a month of back and forth with the tea party favorite. in july, christie criticized paul for advocating limits on nsa surveillance techniques. saying they would hurt efforts to stop terrorism. >> this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines i think is a very dangerous thought. and i remember what we felt like on september 12th, 2001. >> reporter: tuesday on "cbs this morning," the kentucky senator had his own take on the controversy. >> you heard chris christie really denouncing the libertarian wing of the party and that includes you. >> i
at louisiana governor bobbie gindel. this after he had earlier ripped into kentucky senator rand paul. is this healthy or self-destructive. joining us now with our political insiders. so there were no cameras in this one address. let's put it up on the screen what chris christie said. quote, i think we have folks who think they have to be college professors. i like that one. for our ideas to win we have to govern and if we don't win we don't govern. i am going to do anything i need to do to win. what do you think? >> that's politics 101. the larger issue we have are the republicans who are very unpopular have stark divisions on obamacare and on defense and on nsa. but bottom line, greg, when you have got a very unpopular president to have a circular firing squad doesn't make a lot of sense. >> but he tried to rationalize it today and said it is hill thee to have -- it is healthy to have these debates. >> we have a bunch of candidates running like little candidates and we knew they would be talking about the vast american people and the political class and not one of these candidates i
